The Driftwood Players of Aberdeen are presenting the play “Outside Mullingar, ” a dramatic comedy in two acts for teens and adults, written by John Patrick Shanley and directed by Ben Hohman.
The plot: Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits straddling 40. Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland; a state of affairs that, due to his painful shyness, suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him. With Anthony’s father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, Rosemary has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe. With a surprising depth of poetic passion, these yearning eccentric souls fight their way toward solid ground and some kind of happiness.
